Prostate cancer is one of Australia’s biggest killers: 1 in 7 Australian men will be diagnosed with the disease by the age of 85.

It’s no wonder our scientists, at research labs in Melbourne, are working hard to arrest these figures.

CSIRO scientists are developing a way to improve the body’s defences against prostate cancer (and a host of other cancers) and their research is focussed on a specific protein called E6AP.
